    Which Google Talk Plug-In for Arch/Manjaro?


    I'd like to use Google Talk to make phone calls and video chat but they only list Debian/Ubuntu(.deb) or Fedora/OpenSUSE(rpm) packages for their plug-in. So, which one, if either, would I use to work with my Manjaro install or am I just out of luck? Thanks.

    That's one that I saw but seems like it's not all that stable. On a side note, what kind of "packages" does Arch use? Debian uses .deb, Fedora uses .rpm, so what's the ones in Arch called? Thanks for the uber fast reply.

    Wow, that's a mouth full. So if I see a package that's a .pkg.tar.xz more then likely I can use it in my Manjaro install. Thanks. This is all still very new to me since I've been using Debian for close to a year. I'm sure that once I get past the learning curve I'll be ok and not ask so many crazy questions.

    That I don't know. I am not an Arch user but have picked up a few facts about it when reading the Arch Wiki which is a great resource even if you are not running Arch!

    The answer for anyone looking for the Google Talk Plug-In for Arch/Manjaro is to hit Octopi and look under the yaourt tab for Google Talk and you'll find the plug-in there. I downloaded it and it worked like a charm in Firefox even though it says it's not suppose to. Of course while I was in Octopi I also downloaded Chromium just in case. Man, I'm loving Manjaro/Arch. Anything you want you can find.

    The Google talk plugin will be in the AUR https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/g...kplugin.tar.gz
    you'll have to extract it and build the .pkg.tar.xz file.

    Or I can just do like I did in the above post and let Octopi do all that for me.
